THE COURTS. Important Decision in a Stook-Droker- ; ago Oaie—A Jury’s Double Summersault. Tho Kentucky lottery Business Settled— Bankruptcy Holes—Tho Trcmont Uouso Kohh ary. A caso of considerable interest occupied the day in Jhdgo Rogers* Court, in which John D. Parker brought action against the banking firm of Follansbeo & Son to recover a sum of money duo him on n certain sale of Bock Island Block. At tho time of the fire, tho defend ants to the present suit were carrying considerable Block, say 20,000 shares of various kinds, for parlies In this city. Some of those, anticipating a fall in tho stock market aa one of tho Immediate commercial re sult® of the fire, gave orders to Follansbeo & Bon to telegraph immediately to their agouta in Now York to sell. Tho plaintiff in this suit was ono of these provident Individuals, and on tho day ho gave this In struction tho stock—Rock Island—was commanding 107. rollanabeo subsequently tendered him lo2jtf, which was declined, and the present action arose, Thedefcndanta assort In defense, that at tho time of the crisis they, acting on behalf of all their clients, sold all tho Blocks they hold on their account as soon as possible. Naturally, tho prices varied considerably, and, to do what Boomed to them tho square thing, they struck an av orage rate, at which they offered to sotUo with plaln- Uff. Ho urged, however, that, by virturo of the dis tinct instruction given by him on a certain dav, he should bo settled with at the market rate of that day. The ease was tried without a Jury, and His Honor rendered hts decision In favor of plaintiff, carrying a Judgment for $11,233.75. btxunqb termination op a jurt xmal. • *bs Jury in the case of Thomas While, burglar, (ha particulars of which wo published In Tux Tribune of yesterday, added yesterday morning another link to the chain of peculiar circumstances which Is fast rais ing doubta In the public mind aa to tho wondrous ad yanlagoa of the jury system. On Monday evening, at the close of the court, lb was evident that a lack of unanimity prevailed nmongat (ho Jury, -ana it was agreed that a scaled verdict might bo delivered. At 8 in tho evening Judge Farwoll returned to court to dis charge the Jury if they had not coma to terms. The juryhad done so, however, and yesterday morning tho result of their counsels was rendered in a verdict of “ Not guilty.” State’s Attorney Reed considered tho verdict so utterly at variance with the evidence pro duced that bo domondod that the .Jury bo 41 polled.” Nino of tho jurymen here upon stated that tho verdict was not In accordance with their convictions, they having probably fallen in with tho obstinate trio who stood for acquittal, with a view to taslo the sweets of horns and a smoking supper that they know awaited them elsewhere. The Jury wero then sent back to recon sider, and In ono brief hour they returned with a ver dict of guilty, fixing tho prisoner’s punishment at one . year’s I’oultontlary. This case will give a further foot bold to the growing class of skeptics who assort that a full stomach, rather than a well-balanced brain, la the sine qua non of tho modem Juryman. The following are the Jurymen who havo thus Immortalized them selves : J. T. May, W. Montgomery, E. G. Bowen, Henry Freeman, E, Kennedy, O. M. White, P. W„ Wethorcll, H. M. Fowler, J. K. Fnmham, B. hi. Green, Charles McElhany, and Q. n. Wood. ALLEGED DItEAOU Of CONTKAOT, AND WOIXRE.

A nolle prosequi woa entered yesterday, In tlio case of Michael Hayes, who watt convicted. a abort timo •go, of stealing a load of hay from a farmer In the suburbs of tbe city. George Saunders and Edward Costello wore found some time since locked up in a closet of a house, whither they bad gone to ovado the police. They bur glarized their way into the home with intent to com* snlt larceny, and were arrested. The Jury recom mended a year’s Penitentiary apiece. The Tremont House Jewelry robbery case, with the particulars of which tbe readers of Tins Tribune are familiar, camo up before Judge Farwell in the Criminal Court yesterday. The prisoners in dicted woro James 11. Barron and Ignatius Schoen, only tho latter putting In an appearance. Mr. Barron, as many of those who had some knowledge of tha Individual expected, failed to turn up, ami forfeited bis ball bond of SIO,OOO, thereby obliging Mr. lllchard Blakcman to pay tbe amount. Richard, who laanox duloctlvo. and has tho reputation of being a gambler, can hardly bo expected to possess so largo a share of this world’s goods. In view of tho default, Judge Will iams will doubtless continue tho Investigation ho be gan, immediately after granting tho ball in question, as to whether ho had boon Imposed upon by Barron’s counsel with regard to Blakeman’s responsibility. This is another instance of the poor policy of changing Judges every month in the Criminal Court, for, were Judge Williams now on the peach, no attorney would allow a client to default ball for which ho himself was, at least, morally responsi ble. In presence of (he Judge before whom the straw ball was given. In tbe absence of tho principal prls ontr, tliocMO vra» conrtuctej a ß iln,t gcl.oeu Mono, lie was defended liy Mr. Truda, who endeavored to [how that tho prlaonot’a action In the matter waa that of a dupe.

On motion of Hr. Rauch, determined to Instruct tho Secretary to call tho attention of tho Joint Committee on Plans to (ho necessity of securing a plan, (he sani tary arrangements of which should bo unobjection able. Hr. Rauch’S weekly mortality report was presented, embodying tho following facts: There wore during tho week 151 deaths, the principal causes of which wore: accidents, 0; consumption, 17i convulsions, 10; fevers, 6: small-pox, 11; hydrocephalus, 6; and pneu monia, 11. Compared with the preceding week, there was an increase of 94 deaths, tho difference being greater than has occurred daring too past three mouths. There wore 8 more deaths by accidents. 7 by brain dis eases, 3 by consumption, 4 Jby convulsions, 8 by croup, Bby dysentery, 4by congestion of the lungs, 8 by measles, oby pneumonia, aud 3 by whooping-cough. Bronchitis, cancer, puerperal fever, scarlet fever, oorobro-spinal monlgitls aud tabes mesenteries wore at a discount. The highest doath-mto occurred In the Seventh, and tho lowest in tbo Fifth Ward. A marked decrease was observable in tbo number of houses in fected by smali-pox, tho only increase having occurred in the district south of Twelfth street and west of the Chicago River. . Hr. Rauch suggests that all persons who are about to move into houses that may have boon infected by small pox during tbo past two mouths, be warned of that fact, in order that they may bo induced to suffer vac cination. Blnco Sunday there had been a marked In crease in the numbor of coses reported, owing to im ftortations, and tho lack of vaccination on the part of hose prejudiced against It. The Doctor wanted physi cians to understand that there was plenty of virus from the cow in tho city. Tbo report was placed on file, and tho mooting ad journed. ALDERMEN AND GAMBLERS. Ono of the prime requisites for a well-salaried Police Captain is a familiarity with tho city officer?. A police man who blnndora into tho arrest of a turbulent mem ber of tho Common CouncU might as woll resign at once. His work is done. He has disgraced himself, and, oven should ho bo riddled with bullot-holcs, re ceived in tho capture of outlaws, his services ore no longer required. While this is true of a patrolman, it is moro than true of a Captain. By tbo time ono has commanded a district ton or a dozen years, ono Is supposed to know block from white. One can tell an Alderman from a gambler, although it sometimes happens that tho gambler is mistaken for an Alderman, and sometimes tho Alderman for the gambler. There Is one now in the . Common Council. It Is true ho Is not tbo worst man In that body,.but it makes things uncomfortable for tho Captains. They argue thus: If a gambler is an Alderman, and an Alderman is de serving of respect, therefore a gambler is deserving of respect: therefore, ought not to bo orrostod. Hence, too, an Alderman • who is not known as a gambler, ought not to bo a treated when found in a gambling don. Tho forco of these remarks will bo appreciated by Capt. Hickey, as bo will admit to any ono who oaks him. Last week tho veritable Captain pulled a gam bllug den, and found there a crowd of gamblers,— among them an Alderman. Tho gamblers were cap tured and tho Alderman allowed to walk away. On the following evening another gambling den was pull ed, and another Alderman arrested, by mistake. When tho mistake was discovered tho Alderman was released. On tho following evening both Aldcrmon wore cap tured together and released. Will an Alderman from tho th Ward bear in mind that a theatre is a place of public amusement, and that when ho appears there in company with a fashionable gambler who keeps ono of tho most notorious places in town, ho offers an Insult to tho respectable members of tho Common Council 7 THE ELEVEN O’CLOCK ORDINANCE. Tho ordinance requiring tho closing of saloons at 11 o’clock at night was signed by Mayor MedlU yesterday, and will become a law as soon as it shall havo received tho necessary publication. It is tho avowed intention of tho Mayor that this ordinance shall bo rigidly en forced, for tho belter accomplishment of which he will request tho Board of Police to direct tho members of tho Police Department to arrest qn sight parties guilty of keeping tholr saloon open after 11 o’clock, and without going through tho usual form of serving a summons to appear m court. A legal point has been raised by somo of the lawyers in the Interests of sa loon-keepers, as to whether tho new law can bo applied to parties uow holding saloon licenses. This point Is of no consequence whatever, because all licensee ex pire on tho Ist of July next, and also for tho reason that, in any event, tho Common Council has the power to pass ordinances regulating the sale of liquor, with out reference to tho license. This power is distinctly set forth In 800. 1 of Chapter 44 of tho Revised Or dinances. wherein authority is given to tho Mayor to grant licenses, “conditioned that tho tho party so licensed shall faithfully observe all ordi nances heretofore passed, or to be passed, during tho period of such license.” By this it wifi be seen that the saloon-keepers cannot hope to escape the operation of the ordinance by an appeal to the courts. Mayor MedlU yesterday stated his intention to have the 11-o’clock law enforced with reference to every place whore liquors are retailed. Hotel bars will be compelled to suspend operations at that hour, and res taurants will not be permitted to retail liquors after tho stroke of 11. Billiards may bo played, cigars may be smoked, meals may be served tho same as before, but tralfio In tipples must cease. So says the Mayor, who is supposed to know what ho is talking about. THE HON. T. LYLE DICKEY. Ottawa, HI., April 39, 1073. To the Editor of Tho Chicago 'l Vjftune .* Sin: Tho Hon T. Lylo Dickey, well known in Chicago and throughout tho State, is a candi date for Judge of this Circuit. In order to show his position on the groat issue now agitat ing tho popular mind, I subjoin a resolution of fered by him at a convention of farmors, at tbiq place, in January, 1800: Jlaoleed, That corporations aro regarded In law as artificial persons, but have no higher qualities or more sacred rights than natural persons; and, while they should, like natural persons, be protected in (heir rights by tbe law, they, at tho same timo, like natural persons, should be eubjoot to the law, and may, Uko natural ponsous, bo restrained by law from extortion and wrong. It is hold, in all civilized countries, to bo competent for tho lawmaking powor to fix a maximum rate of interest on loaned money, a maximum rate of ferriage, aud a maximum rate of toll for grinding breadstuff!), and this upon tho principle that extortion, where ouo party has tho advantage of tho other, may bo prohibited by statute. Upon this principle wo assort the right of the public to bare maximum rales of travel and transportation by railways fixed by the Legisla ture, aud (be present arbitrary discrimination between different points on tbo same lino prohibited.

The material employed Is tho familiar corrugated Iron in sheets, and tho speci alty is itn mode of attachment to the Mansard front and roof, and to celling and floor-beams, by being riveted to T Iron strips, fastened laterally upon tho frame-work. Tho latter may bo either of wood or iron, but by this principle tho former is made entirely safe, with much economy, by the intervention of an air-chamber throughout the whole surface. The now arrangement for receiving and holding tho sheets, used In the ceilings and at angles in a cast-iron Jaw, firmly fastened to the frame as before, tho principle is ono (hat will everywhere commend Itself in respect to economy and perfect safety. As a proof that tho roof needs oniy to bo seen to bo appreciated, we will state that H. 11. Uonoro has given it the preference over all other roofs in tho market, and has contracted to have his now hotel building, corner Adams and Dearborn streets, covered with It. For further information ad dress Jos. Gilbert, or A. Knleoly A Oo„ Nos. 73 and 74 Wost Monroe street, who are the authorized agent* for this market. To the Ladies.

Meeting of tho Board ot Education—Appointment, Ronlfl , nation, end Transfer of Teachers—Gorman In tho School*—Young Mr. Hosing’s Bright Plan—Superin tendent’* Report-Over 32,000 Pupils Enrolled, A meeting of the Board of Education was held last evening, President King In the chair. ■ Tho Building Committee reported that bnt two pro posals bad been received for the nnlo of a school site in tho vicinity of Wentworth avenue and Twenty-nlxth street, and asked further time in which to receive bids. The propositions received ranged from $3,C00 to $4,600. The additional time naked for was granted. Tho question was rained aa to who should superin tend tho conntructlon of now school buildings. On motion, Mr. Samuel Johnson woo appointed to have ohrrgo of tho work. A bill of |6OO, by tho law firm of McOagg, Fuller A Co., for legal advice, was allowed.

D, Oates, Scammon School; Mrs, M. Dralnard, Boll ing Mills School. Tho report was concurred In. An oztondod and exhaustive report on (ho study of Gorman in tho schools was read by Inspector Hcslng. Fault is found with tho manner in which tho language Is and tho Committee recommends that it be made a graded study, to bo extended through a course of three years, for .which time It should be compulsory. Such a plan, In tbo opinion of (bo Committee, would go far toward abolishing all distinctions as to birth, and make our population homogeneous In Its charac ter. Gorman is now taught in but thirteen of tho schools, and tho Committee recommend that it be taught In all tbo schools. Tho report was laid over. Tho roontaly report of Superintendent Pickard was presented, showing that for the month of April tho High School enrollment was 855; average dally attend ance, 810. Tbo number enrolled In tho Normal School woa 85; average daily attendance, 70. The nnmbor enrolled In tho North Division was 0,930; average at tendance, 8,473. In the South Division the enrollment was 7,604; average attendance, 0,000. In tho West Division, 17,257 were enrolled, with (in average attend ance of 14,877. The total number carolled was 91,807;

average dally attendance, 27,000. Tho highest enroll ment, 82,408, was for the month of January; the lowest, 31,620, In February. Tbo average for four months was 82,093. Suspensions for misconduct were somewhat more numerous than under tbo old methods of discipline, hut a marked decrease was noticeable daring the past month. The average of suspensions for the time was 1 for each 8,000 pupils. On account of the recent exam inations hold with reference to tho Vienna. Exposition, it was thought advisable not to hold the usual spring examinations. Tbo examination papers not sent to Vienna, nor placed In tho Public Library, showed an average of 80 per cent,—a bolter result than ever be fore In an examination among pupils of all grades. Teachers have Buffered more from sickness than ever before. The report wan ordered published. Tbo resignation of Miss F. O. Lolso, teacher in tho Fearaon Street School, was accepted, and Hattie M. Butterfield was elected to fill tbo vacancy. Miss Palmer, bead assistant of tbo Ogdon School, having resigned, Mary E. Graves was elected to that position. Tho Board adjourned. AMUSEMENTS. rnOF.

THE PLANS, Belvidbrr, 111., April 28,1873. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune .* 8m: Have you noticed the peculiar and strange 11 twist” that tho Timet has, oa Sunday last, taken to it self, more especially with regard to one plan, “Eureka?” Now, I am a disinterested party, as to Individuality, but, as an Inhabitant of tho West, I am interested in our metropolitan Improvements. I have followed, with other papers, tho Timet, which does not forgot occasionally to boost of its power, and noticed that paper hoe particu larly praised (ho “ Eureka ” plan, and commented on its favorable points. On Sunday last It gavo an edito rial on tho plans, and unmercifully slashed away at tho “Eureka”and other plans; I may say all but No. 2 out of thonluo aoloctcd. Now how is this? Money I know could do this, but, 1 ask, is it so, or how? I write this to Justify tho architects of some of tho plans and my own peculiar sense of impartiality. How is it that the “Eureka” plan’s estimate Is only $2,800,000. and tbo Times says it will cost $1,000,000 ? Does tho Times presume to bo an architect and builder combined, capable of forming estimates bettor than practical men ? By giving publicity to this you will favor An Impartial Ooseutzb. Answer : Our correspondent is not tho Oral Inquirer upon this subject. We, in common with a very largo namberof citizens, havonoticed tho sudden “twist” In the Timet relative to all tho plans but No. 2. Tho architect of the “Eureka” plans, though a genius, as seen from his design, Is not a successful competitor for State-Hiuse buildings, and is not, in consequence, a millionaire. This probably explains the sudden “ twist ” referred to. MARINE. PORT OF CHICAGO. ARRIVED April 3). Scow Ohrlelle, Muskegon, 135 m lumber. Bohr Emelino, Muskegon, 130 m lumber. Bchr J. 0.
